. also, what it's like to debate mitt romney. newt gingrich knows and he'll tell us about that and more. and after a multimillion dollar makeover, what's supposed to be one of washington's most beautiful sites is an ugly eyesore. wolf blitzer's off today. i'm joe johns. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with one of the states that in just 41 days could decide the presidential election, ohio, is so important both to president obama and mitt romney campaigning there this afternoon. and there's more of a backdrop than just the early autumn trees. a brand new quinnipiac/cbs "new york times" poll has the president a full ten points ahead of romney in ohio. 53% to 43%. let's begin with cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. >> reporter: joe, even though a new poll shows the president with a double digit lead in ohio, mr. obama continues to push hard in the state. it's a huge priority for the campaign according to a top aide. by our count the president has visited ohio at least 13 times so far this year. this time ahead of early voting, which by the way begins next tuesday. now,
is lagging in key states. we'll talk with newt gingrich about the reasons why and what the romney campaign should do. two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. and every day since, we've worked hard to keep it. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help people and businesses who were affected, and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open for everyone to enjoy -- and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. we've shared what we've learned with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been st
gingrich. he's going to be with us onset. also senator mccaskill whose opponent last night said she just wasn't lady like enough. boy, that will help you with the swing voters in missouri. also former white house secretary dee dee myers and nbc news political director and soon to be former miami hurricanes fan chuck todd. up next "political playbook" and don't miss willie's week in review. it will make your weekend in three minutes. first bill karins with a check of the weekend forecast. >> it's going to be a little transition, joe. we're watching rain moving through areas of new england and the mid-atlantic this morning making for a messy, slow morning commute especially in new england. then we'll slowly clear it out for much of the weekend. look at the radar this morning. this is a large covering shield of rain from the hudson valley of new york down through massachusetts, connecticut and pushing into areas of new hampshire. so it's going to be a wet morning for the kids at the bus stop and everyone else heading to work this morning. philadelphia south wards to d.c. and even new york c
previous debating opponents in the gop primary. newt gingrich and rick santorum, and i certainly don't agree with either of them on anything, on everything, but the way they challenged the basic false premises of these very far from neutral observers was very admirable, something that appeals not just to the base of the republican party and conservatives, but i think especially to those independents. i mean, the first debate will be here in colorado. this is a huge battleground state. particularly when it comes to these women issues, the democrat party has vastly overreached in this whole idea that women simply think with their chromosomes and internal organs. the way that the democrats have presented themselves as champions of women, when of course they have this destructive economic record, and the caricature of the sandra fluke typos, radical pinkos, dancing around in costumes dressed up as reproductive organs. this is not what mainstream females are about. we need to have the romney campaign representing that. >> sean: m see you as always. and coming up -- >> i said even at the t
gingrich in south carolina but i think in the end there is sort of a point, tipping point where the amounts of money you spend on an ad campaign don't make up for say people not interested in coming to vote because they're disenchanted. they don't agree with anything or are unhappy generally. in the same way the ads don't make up for the time you could be spending, shaking hands and trying to humanize yourself. personally with them. so i think you -- the message comes first and then like you were saying earlier depends on what you have to say. you can be sitting on -- i don't know, billions and billions of dollars but if that message doesn't resonate with people -- >> eliot: it won't matter. look, there is a declining marginal value to the last ad once they've seen it ten times. the 11th doesn't matter that much. the more important the job, such as president, the less important the ads are. when you're talking about jobs where people don't know the candidates don't, know what the job is about, the first ad matters b
. and as -- [applause] i left to value office, president obama said, you know, if bob dole or newt gingrich had been here,
. >> caller: they're totally reaching and my second thing is, you know seeing newt gingrich with todd akin, it is despicable. this whole ralph reed thing, i sent you and chris a copy of the form. he's got this voter form and it was on rachel maddow last night. it is despicable. >> stephanie: newt gingrich will go to the opening of an envelope. the rapey guy? sure. >> caller: absolutely. i don't know. you know, remember with president obama and bill ayers and reverend wright, continually, defended himself. so why isn't mitt romney stepping away from these people? i don't agree with ralph reed or todd akin? he's not doing that. >> the plan is to step -- he's obviously cleared himself of newt gingrich a long time ago and todd akin, they came out directly against because they didn't have a choice and my favorite was that he kept saying i would have used different words. that kind of thing. he keeps saying i would have used different words like perhaps thate language is different than our syntax. >> stephanie: you were
of the house, newt gingrich announc jo. >> greta: the headlines, "obama comes to new york for barbara walters, and sort of u.n." why isn't he meeting with anybody? >> i think it's a comment on the depth of his arrogance. i think this is a person that doesn't care what the world thinks, doesn't care what the american people thinks. if he gets re-elected, he'll be right and the rest of us will be wrong. i mean, his view is all about a cynical, calculated approach. "the view" gets him more votes than meeting with 10 or 15 world leaders. and the fact that he's not doing his job is irrelevant. you have to divide it into two parts. there's winning the office and there is actually being president. he's clearly said if i can win the office, i don't care what the rest of you think. let me say, what should really deeply bother americans is how does all this play out in the rest of the world? imagine you were an ambassador trying to explain to the president of egypt or the president of china or the president of germany, the chancellor of germany, you know, the president can't meet with you because there
with john t. sick and newt gingrich in 1997, and eat a balanced budget. it got the job done. the balanced the budget. we were paying off debt. the unemployment rate was going down. other than that it did not work. i did not like the welfare bill, because it did not provide the kind of child care support that we needed to provide, and became in in 1997 and did it. i did not require -- i did not oppose people of the kind to have to work. i do not disagree with that position at all. to say that i have opposed spending cuts is inaccurate. i was governor in 1983 when we were in recession. week lowered the tax on food as a consequence of a significant effort by the legislature. it was every interest group in the state that lined up. spend more money here, there. we held the line. in this campaign, i have endorsed republican proposals to cut spending, by conservative senator from oklahoma tom coburn. us on the way to do it. >> you have 30 seconds. >> this piece of legislation was a signature achievement of president clinton. it was a vote against cutting spending. he did not cut spending than. i
that happened late last year during which you had mitt romney, newt gingrich commander santorum all agree enthusiastically that when the immigration reform to attract more high skilled immigrants. and kept asking them, what about the border? there were having this conversation about themselves and it was completely ignored. it sounded like a border is said to me. and of course mitt romney give a speech about immigration reform that was oriented around family reunification and more skilled vises. and -- and utterly marginal issue. the most recent years that we have data for you have more immigration, more skilled immigration than you do less. also, you have more representation from asia than you do let america. that doesn't necessarily mean any kind of the changed. he's not hearing terribly well. yet it is also true that the immigration debate is our friend in some ways was some of us and its friends and others by others. i think that's important to keep in mind, particularly as the composition of that continues to change. i guess i see these questions a little more differently in that i s
? >> that is the third option, and that is to criticize the question as newt gingrich did very effectively in the republican primaries when asked about marital problems. >> it could have said i would kill the son of a -- [laughter] >> one of the purposes of the debate was to actually try to learn something about the candidate you do not already know. what we argue about him is vacation reading included swedish land use planning. i agree absolutely with sandy. i would have wanted to kill him, but we are a nation of laws. he apparently had a brother that was killed in an automotive accident and another relative who was mugged. as of was that question was and of prepared as he was, that is the nature of the presidency. things will happen for which you are not prepared, and i thought it may have been an unfair glimpse, but it was also telling, and i defend the question. >> what does the canada do when a question like that is posed the comes out of left field? it does reach to sometimes the heart of your character or personality? >> i think he did the right thing. there was no pause. there was
for the republican revolution of 1994, because it was the republicans under newt gingrich who adopted a lot of your tactics and positions. then it was recently we had tea party movement. that was a movement within a political party. do you think it takes that kind of a movement? i am wondering what your thoughts were when the tea party revolution rose up in 2009? >> interesting to see that happen. i was surprised. it has had an interesting impact, don't you think? >> yes, interesting. >> not the solution, but it was a healthy thing to happen. >> that shows that average americans are -- >> it wakes up a lot of american citizens. >> my personal view is that he party and the occupy movement had a lot in common. because they are both concerned with a lack of integrity and accountability. in the case of the tea party, they are concerned with the lack of accountability in government. in the case of occupy, is wall street, and guess what -- they are both right. >> he summed it up beautifully. >> when you were running, it was a matter of people getting to call into an 800-number. now we're into this world
of these pacs may have come in the primaries were they really transformed republican primaries. newt gingrich and rick santorum almost certainly were not at stake in the race as long as they did after losing several contests in each case with out a million air or four backing them with checks as high as $5 million. as a result, the republican primary was much more prolonged than it would have been. romney and his friends have to spend much more money than they expected defending him in those early months. the whole dynamic of what we are used to wear we have a nominee, we are up in it for a few weeks. since then, the super pak sets and in a huge wave is sumner. when romney wins, he does not have the money he needs to compete with obama. he relied heavily on super pacs to do is advertising. this is not technically coordinated advertising. trevor can get into the realities there. it had some obvious positive affect inholding parity with the president as he issued a blistering attack against romney this summer. it has shown to have clear weaknesses. both campaigns will tell you this. the super p
gingrich was talking about. spent another question. recently one of mitt romney's operatives made a statement to reporters when they're pushing him on the claim about, well, it's our most effective at and we're not going to have our campaign dictated by fact checkers. i think a lot of probably naÏve news editors were rather shocked at the cynicism that they heard coming out of this polltakers mouth. so my question, you've been around the longest, were you shocked? did this surprise you? >> i really can't say that it was because, you know, they had kind of behavior that way all along. they are certainly not terribly worried. they're not worried enough to change the rhetoric when something is pointed out to them. and in speed do you mean the romney campaign's we? campaign's? >> now. >> [inaudible] >> this is -- my take on this, i'm in the context of that question and answer was actually they were saying that this is the most effective ad, and john of abc said that got four pinocchios, so the response as well, we are not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers. and wh
. people had gone to the web and looked up what newt gingrich was talking about. >> another question -- recently, one of mitt romney's operatives made the statement to reporters when they were pushing him on the claim about welfare. we will keep running that, we will not have our campaign did but -- dictated by fact checkers. probably a lot of news people were shocked by the cynicism they heard coming out of his mouth. jim, you have been around the longest -- did this surprise you? >> i really cannot say that i was. they had kind of behave that way all along. they were certainly not terribly worried enough to change the rhetoric when something is pointed out to them. >> you mean the romney campaign? >> yes. i do not see a lot of evidence of trimming statements back to make a more accurate when they are repeated -- >> i do not know about that. this is -- my take on this, in the context of that question and answer, they were saying that this is the most effective ad. they said, that got four pinocchios. the response was, we are not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers
with newt gingrich. we have to get back to that context when it is not about political party but taking care of people and moving forward. leadership is not about blame. it is the house's fall for the president's fault. leadership is about rolling up your sleeves and locking yourself in a room and leading by example. congress has not been able to come of with a budget in 2,000 days. that is ridiculous. let's come up with a budget. there is legislation that is bipartisan. no budget no pay legislation says if congress doesn't do its job and have a responsible budget they don't get paid. that is a step in the right direction. my pledge is i will co-sponsor that legislation which is bipartisan and holds congress accountable for doing with their job which is passing a budget and they haven't done it in 2,000 days. has the no budget no pay legislation. >> the question is about compromise. give us another ec would be willing to compromise on. bera: there are many of us who thing no child left behind is going in the wrong direction. i will stand against my own party and the president. i don't think
